Today marks the start of LGBTQ+ Pride Month and this year marks the 50th anniversary of the very first pride march in the UK.
Since then, we have seen a lot of progressive change and more positive attitudes towards the LGBTQ+ community, and we stand with the majority of the population in believing that someone’s sexual or gender orientation should have no impact on their opportunities in education, in work, and in life.
Supporting LGBTQ+ people is of course a year-round commitment. If you’d like to find out more about our policies relating to LGBTQ+ issues or policies relating to the prevention of discrimination, please visit our policies page on the website.
Whatever celebrations you’re taking part in this month, take pride in who you are!
